Skip to comments.Israelis worried by anti-Semitic flavor of 'Occupy Wall St.' protests
Posted on 10/16/2011 5:03:20 PM PDT by Nachum
A growing number of Israelis and foreign Jewish groups are expressing concern over the anti-Semitic flavor of some of the "Occupy Wall St." economic protests in the US. From the 13th century expulsion of Englands Jews to the 19th century Russian pogroms to the Nazi Holocaust, sour economic conditions have historically formed the backdrop of rising anti-Semitism.(snip) Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper called the anti-Semitic outbursts ''hard to watch,'' and an Israeli commenter said, ''It's just like pre-World War II Nazi Germany. You think blood libels can't happen in America?''

The ‘k’ word has been taught to these people. A racial slur against Jews. I heard a young woman use it on Hannity, early this past week.
The “Occupiers” just want to party like it’s 1939.
Dear God. Where will all this end up? This is NOT my country.
We (Gentiles) must stand up for the Jews and condemn this MESS that Barack Hussein Obama and his “useful ignoramuses” revel in. - Loud enough so he HEARS! Koch, where are YOU? Why are you now silent? - Let’s not be like many of the German people before the war, cowering and worshipping at the altar of Hitler. NOW, they understand, but too late, too late. - Marxism? No thanks. National Socialist Party (Nazi Party)? No thanks.
What the Israeli people should be (and are) worried about is not the fringe rabble in the streets, but the fact the America has a radical-left, lawless government that is supporting and favors such anti-America, anti-semitic activity to further the dismantling of the American Constitutional Republic.
THAT is the real root problem here.
It's not just Israelis and foreign Jewish groups.
Hinaini. I'm American born and bred (and even Constitutionally eligible to be President).
Of course, it's not just the OWS folks who concern me. I also fear the folks occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Exactly. Nazis and Commies love OWS.
Agreed. Not mine, either.
They should be concerned...you have a President who even today said he supports them and you have the media that REFUSES to show the anti anti semitism that is going on..all they show are the hippies who are singing give peace a chance and talking about rich people “Paying their fair share” they dont bring up the fact that the American Nazi Party supports them and the horrible anti semitic comments that these protestors have been spewing
Jews in this country are scratching their heads at the democrat support of these antisemetic occipiers.
Obama put forth the idea of a "civilian force." In the 1930s, Germany had one of those, known as the SA. Didn't work out that well for the German Jews, most of whose families had been in Germany (or the Austro-Hungarian Empire) for generations. They were loyal citizens, many had served honorably in the wars over the generations.
And Pelosi has thrown her support behind them, meaning that the democrat party has as well, as have most leftist publications and media. With the influx of union and dem money, it's pretty obvious that Obama will use these "useful idiots" as foot soldiers to try getting him elected. And their handlers could easily lose control of them, unleashing a mob, though that could well be the goal of many on the left. It would certainly be in the playbook or people like Piven and her dead husband. This could get ugly before the American Jewish public realizes it.
It wouldnt surprise me if CAIR or similar Islamists are funding a lot of the American anti-semetic groups.
Dear God. Where will all this end up? This is NOT my country.
Over my dead body.
They shouldn’t be. History has shown if you scratch a leftist, you uncover an anti-semite.
That’s a positive step up from fearing the people who live in the Corn Belt.
Maybe when the ACLU wakes up and stops the irrational war on tearing down crosses and Christian symbols in public places. Perhaps they should focus on the raised fists in the streets in solidarity with terrorist thinking of support to destroy Israel. Its not the true Christians railing against Israel but the leftist dreck of the left in the unholy alliance of radical islamic goals.
It’s NAZI Germany all over again.
How ironic (but not surprising to conservatives) that while liberals accused conservatives of being Nazis and little Hitlers, it was really the leftists who had the most in common with Hitler, including his anti-Semitism.
We must resist this new form of an old evil. This cannot be allowed to happen in the United States of America.
They have shown their true colors and its brown as in Brown shirts. We must stop this movement cold before they use their MSM friends to take power and start to do terrible. First villainize a group then .... the real horror starts.
On the bright side, the brownshirts will be the first to go.
Totalitarians don’t need troublemakers once they’re in power.
This serves American Jews right, they are reaping the harvest they have sown. For too many years the Jews in America have given tens of millions of dollars in support of the Socialist Democrac Party, aka Democrat Party. Now they get to learn just what they purchased with all of those dollars going to the left..........Remember, Hitler was a socialist.....
I’m rather more disturbed by the OWS crowd’s anti American character.
I suppose that the writer of the posted article is hesitant about using the word "Democrat" (with a capital "D") to describe these "political leaders" who are not repudiating the antisemitism of the "occupiers." That's partly because their party sees it as working to their political advantage, as the most statistically antisemitic ethnic groups in the country - Muslims, blacks, and foreign born Hispanics - are viewed as key blocs in their party's coalition.
The lack of response to antisemitic activity mirrors what we've grown accustomed to seeing from gutless European "political leaders" who are obviously pandering to their Islamic populations in doing so.
As for the "mainstream American media," they have been, for the most part, a virtual branch of the Democratic Party for decades, so it's hardly a surprise that they too are doing little or no repudiation of the protesters.
It should be noted that Rush Limbaugh has been proactive on his radio show in pointing out the antisemitism among the Occupy Wall Street participants and linking the event to partial sponsorship by Adbusters, a Canadian group with a history of anti-Israel and antisemitic activity. Other national "conservative" radio talk show hosts, such as Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, have also exposed this ugly dynamic.
Sad and true
You are painting with much too broad of a brush. You might be surprised to see how much money from American Jews goes to Republican causes and candidates opposing the tyranny of the 'Rat Party.
Now what do the Leftist, self-hating Jews have to say about it? Crickets chirping...
Not to mention that there are a good many Jewish FReepers who are anything but progressive.
“Obama put forth the idea of a “civilian force.” In the 1930s, Germany had one of those, known as the SA. Didn’t work out that well for the German Jews, most of whose families had been in Germany (or the Austro-Hungarian Empire) for generations.”
He also used them against anyone else who stood up against Hitler. Six million Jews were murdered by Hitler and his henchmen. Another six million were the Christians and others.
This movement is going global. I think we are going to see Israel vs. the World very shortly.
You cannot know the 1000s upon 1000s of us who will not only rush to the defense but onward to victory and restoration of OUR country as it has been and will be again.
Keep the faith and look to your friends, neighbors and allies—we will not bend!
The ACLU is communist, not Jewish.
“In the present state of affairs I am convinced that we cannot possibly dispense with the trades unions.”
Obama thinks the same thing and the stimulus that was passed helped the unions quite a bit.
The “Occupy” horde is led by students and instructors, and most of the locations are near universities. The movement is also global. They’re the elite, folks, and most of them by far are not Jewish. They’re globally oriented—citizens of the world.
We, as Americans in general, should be moral, old fashioned Americans. If we don’t own nationalism American style (based on good deeds rather than symbols or international coveting), the divide-and-conquer proponents of worldwide empire will. They’ll do so while trying to focus general blame against Jewish people and/or other subgroups of Americans. Too many of our business and political leaders are more attached to their various European and other worldly inclinations and are not faithful to the rest of us (as Americans).
As for Jewish people, of course we need to protect them. That’s part of our heritage (see Protestants of early America, the English Civil War, the meetings in Holland, early American Sephardim, all).
Some quotes from the words of George Washington:
“Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?”
“Nothing is more essential, than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular Nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded...The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.”
Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.
AND YET THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY VOTE DEMOCrat

Looks like the story of Esther is playing itself out on a global level!
Haman, descendant of Amalek, worked his way up in power structure of the Persian empire. After WWII the Nazis, descendants of Amalek, scattered all over the world including America, put on business suits and infiltrated them. Why do you think anti-Semitism and the push to normalize homosexuality have grown so much over the last several decades? And how about the rise of Islam today with whom the Nazis were buds during WWII?
Now look at the power of women that has grown over the last 40 - 50 years and see the parallel with the rise of Esther and power that she wielded. There’s a reason why the women’s movement has occurred at this time and place.
He only outlawed the unions that were pro-Stalin or opposed Hitler for other reasons.
Everyone gather in Texas for a good cowboy and Nazi game.
The Occupy Wall Street protesters are the Red Diaper Doper Babies of the 1% anti-Semitic, Leftist political, social, and economic elite of this country and the Europeans.
They have been preaching hard core anti-white racist doctrines for a few decades in the name of “diversity” and to rationalize racial preferences/discrimination. Holder brought it to the DOJ with the proclamation that whites don’t have equal voting right to his superior race tribe.
It was not a stretch to see this aspect of hate taking root. Racists hate no matter what color they are. They live on jealously and blame shifting. I spent a summer a long time ago reading academic leftist race books. The one group all the tribes of diversity racists hate is Jews. And Jewish Americans, in the majority, have supported this leftist anti-freedom stuff. Jewish leftists/communists in Germany helped bring Hitler to power in the same way. We should change the slogan from “never forget” to “never remember” with Leftists writing history.
But screw ‘em. They aren’t getting anywhere with this crap in America. Although they are getting away with forming racist mobs and beating whites. They do get away with job and opportunity discrimination. Gays and teacher union members are getting away with harassing Christians and vandalizing their churches.
We all need to stand up for ourselves and each other against leftist tribalism, aka, liberal racism. No tolerance with these people and their bullying hate.
Sad that people in this country can lambaste Jews for this or that and no racism( I am not saying you are, please not even suggesting it)and no one but conservatives stand up and call the OWS BS what it is, but say a thing about the muslims, blacks, Hispanics etc well, you'll be labeled and probably what I've heard on the Wall St critters possibly jailed for saying kill the n____s, or sned he W__b___s swimming back over the Rio.
Blacks can say kill whitey crackers and seemingly get away with it even are cheered in their culture( aka Shabazz). Or some get their own TV news opinion show and called a 'Reverend. The thing I do not like and am very wary of is the double standard and no one is telling folks anti-antisemitism is racism of the most destructive kind.
I'm proud of being a Messianic Joooooo. In fact I may be going to a synagogue in which a J-St person is speaking tomorrow night. Anyone have some questions I should ask them? Like this question,
"This is from my good friend "stockpirate":Why should we accept your peace and your candidate when you are politicking and promoting socialism just like Herr Hitler did?"
That needs to be repeated, made into some graphics, maybe bumper stickers... etc.
As a Jew, I resent your remarks. Many of our finest minds in the conservative movement are Jews. Stop stereotyping, please. We get enough crap from the other side.
One of them is Mark Levin, prominent attorney, Temple University Beasley School of Law graduate who served in the Reagan administration, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, author of three bestsellers, guest columnist for National Review, former Chief of Staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese, former Deputy Solicitor of the U.S. Department of the Interior...
or as you describe him, "some talk radio guy."
